Re: ChibiAkumas for Spectrum 128K

Great! It seems to be a game that Zx Spectrum has never seen before. I'm pretty sure it will be presented at many retro parties to show what's possible on our old trusty machine.

Re: Software Projects's Hysteria advert is wrong on many levels

You know what? It looks like Hysteria cover was created by a woman :o I actually never knew it. At least C64 people claim so on their site.

Re: Gandalf Deluxe

Thanks!

I had a sort play just now.
And may confirm that it became even better ;)

When I played Gandalf for the first time, it was great multicolor but gameplay at the same time felt a bit unresponsive and clumsy. Now everything seems more smooth.

Who needs Mario if we have Gandalf? ;)

Re: Playdays now available

Nice discovery! It was made for little kids so I suppose many of us may find it hard to get excited by it ;) but it's actually performed very well. The graphics are cute. The music? Well it supports both beeper and AY. And I would stronly recommend using AY. The beeper tune actually could be used as...

Re: Interview on Homebrew Legends

Nice interview! I suppose I have a bit similar style of working with Spectrum games to you, Alessandro: 1) avoiding any deadlines, it's done when it's done 2) working alone Actually 1) is deeply connected with 2) When you work with other people you have to keep deadlines. One of the worst things of ...

Re: The thread of POKEs

I just read the code until I see things that make sense The next level of experience would be using conditional breakpoints ;) So if you know which memory cell stores lives and the value of lives is currently 3 then put a global breakpoint on condition [Lives]<>3 and lose a life, you will get into ...
